Aldi’s slogan of Good, Different took on a whole new meaning for one customer who made a bizarre discovery in a tin of Black Beans.

When the shopper opened the tin after shopping at the German retail giant, she found something completely different inside.

Sharing her odd find on social media, the shopper posted a picture of an El Tora brand tin of black beans which strangely contained diced tomatoes instead.

“These are some weird black beans,” she wrote alongside her image.

The shopper said she hadn’t tried the brand of beans before, so was initially confused about whether they were meant to be like that or not.

“I hadn’t bought the beans before so I thought they could have been some weird Mexican beans,” she joked.

“So I used a fork to dig around them but nope, just tinned tomatoes.”

Fellow Aldi shoppers see discovery as hilarious

It wasn’t long before her post was flooded with dozens of comments from people who found her surprising find very amusing.

“Oops, someone in the factory stuffed up!” one person wrote.

“Maybe your tomatoes might have beans,” joked another.

“I’m scared to open my can in the cupboard lol,” added a third.

While most customers saw the funny side, others added encouraged her to report what had happened to Aldi.

“100% take this back to the store. This will need to be investigated for sure!” one shopper said.

The customer is yet to make a formal complaint to Aldi, but she told Yahoo News Australia she is planning on getting in touch with them.

Aldi has been contacted by Yahoo News for comment.

It's happened before

Strangely enough, this isn't the first time a shopper has opened a tinned product to find something they weren’t expecting.

A Woolworths shopper said she recently opened a tin of the Woolworths Essentials brand diced Italian tomatoes to find it filled with water.

Shell McKenzie from the Melbourne suburb of Sunbury told Yahoo News Australia that she received the tin in her online order before making the unusual discovery.

"It was delivered to my workplace," she explained.

"My cook opened it and was shocked it was filled with water… we bought others that were fine."

After posting about her bizarre find on the Woolworths Facebook page, Shell was asked to contact the supermarket to provide more details on the product.

"I spoke with them on the phone and they were shocked and offered a refund and a $10 goodwill credit," she said.

"They have no idea how it happened."
